Mensagem da Diretora-Geral da UNESCO por ocasião do Dia Mundial da Filosofia

 

A filosofia é uma disciplina apaixonante, é também uma prática quotidiana que pode transformar as sociedades. Ao permitir a descoberta da diversidade das correntes intelectuais no mundo, a filosofia estimula o diálogo intercultural. Ao despertar mentes para o exercício do pensamento e para o confronto racional de opiniões, a filosofia contribui para a construção de uma sociedade mais tolerante e respeitadora.

In line with the outcomes of the 1999 World Conference on Science (WCS), and taking into account the 2011 Budapest Declaration on the New Era of Global Science, the 2013 Rio de Janeiro Declaration on Science for Global Sustainable Development, and the 2015 Budapest Declaration on The Enabling Power of Science we reaffirm our commitment to the responsible and ethical use of scientific knowledge in addressing the great challenges facing humankind.

UNESCO CHAIR IN ECOHYDROLOGY: WATER FOR ECOSYSTEMS AND SOCIETIES – Algarve University Portugal

The International Hydrological Programme (IHP) is the only intergovernmental programme of the UN system devoted to water research, water resources management, and education and capacity building. Since its inception in 1975, IHP has evolved from an internationally coordinated hydrological research programme into an encompassing, holistic programme to facilitate education and capacity building, and enhance water resources management and governance

Water resources are under increasingly severe pressure from climate change and other global drivers. Climate change alters rainfall patterns, soil moisture, humidity, glacier-mass balance and river flow, and also causes changes to underground water sources. At the same time, floods or droughts are rising in frequency and intensity. The impact on ecosystems and societies needs to be addressed and adaptive management solutions need to be proposed, accepted and implemented at the highest governance levels. This requires education for scientific innovation, transference of knowledge and creation of sustainable management practices.

The UNESCO Chair in Ecohydrology: water for ecosystems and societies links with the UNESCO IHP strategic Programme for the VIII Phase “Water Security: Responses to Local, Regional, and Global Challenges”, particularly with the Theme 5: “Ecohydrology, engineering harmony for a sustainable world”, one of the six main themes approved by the 193 countries, at the General Conference.

On 24th November this Chair will be presented on the Gambelas campus of the University of Algarve in Faro, were the UNESCO Chair on Geoparks, Sustainable Regional Development and Healthy Lifestyles will be present.
